May 9th to 19th, 2013
THURSDAY May 9th 2013
On Thursday the mood in your interpersonal relationships shifts abruptly when love planet Venus leaves overly comfy Taurus and wings her way into Gemini. The next four weeks will be a time of change and variety in relationships, with special emphasis on flirting and online dating. And since Gemini is the Sign of the Twins, you may find yourself jugging two (or more) relationships simultaneously.
FRIDAY May 10th 2013
Overnight Thursday/Friday the Moon aligns with the Sun in Taurus for an annular (or partial) Solar Eclipse visible over Australia and New Zealand. In Antinous Moon Magic we call the TAURUS NEW MOON the MARCUS AURELIUS MOON because he was a man of judicious might and justice, a warrior and a poet, a man whose reign was called a Golden Age. The TAURUS NEW MOON highlights Taurean qualities (determined, practical, devoted, grounded, dependable) and 2nd House themes (material security, values, self-worth). On a spiritual/higher plane, the New Moon in Taurus seeks inner peace through stability and contentment.
SATURDAY May 11th 2013
On Saturday the weekend gets off to a splendid start when Mercury and the Sun align in perfect conjunction in Taurus ... the Zodiac's comfort zone. But don't get too comfortable because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD will form aspects to unpredictable Neptune and impulsive Uranus which could hold some surprises. Unexpected guests could appear on your doorstep.
SUNDAY May 12th 2013
On Sunday you can forget about your diet when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in perfect conjunction with exaggeration-prone Jupiter in convivial Gemini. This is a recipe for over-indulgence and excess in food, drink and spending money.
MONDAY May 13th 2013
On Monday the new work week begins with a slight hangover from Sunday's over-indulgence of the senses. Even if you minded your diet and abstained on Sunday, a Venus/Neptune square aspect leaves you a bit foggy-minded most of Monday.
TUESDAY May 14th 2013
On Tuesday you might want to take cover and lay low at work when harsh words are exchanged and tempers flare as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects to no-nonsense Pluto and fly-off-the-handle Uranus.
WEDNESDAY May 15th 2013
On Wednesday the mood lightens abruptly when Mercury leaves stick-in-the-mud Taurus and wings his way into his home sign of Gemini ... where the Messenger God will enhance communications, business transactions and travel plans. However, Mercury will only be in Gemini for two weeks before moving on to pouty Cancer ... so enjoy it while you can.
THURSDAY May 16th 2013
On Thursday the mood lightens abruptly when Mercury leaves stick-in-the-mud Taurus and wings his way into his home sign of Gemini ... where the Messenger God will enhance communications, business transactions and travel plans. However, Mercury will only be in Gemini for two weeks before moving on to pouty Cancer ... so enjoy it while you can.
FRIDAY May 17th 2013
Overnight Thursday/Friday the moon squares off against the Sun for the LEO FIRST QUARTER lunar phase which we call the SCARAB MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. The Spirit of the Scarab Moon is the element of surprise and serendipity. It is the Spirit of adventure which whispers into your ear: Go ahead! You can do it! It is the Spirit of boundless enthusiasm and optimism. This Lunar Spirit holds the key which unlocks every door. It is the Spirit that guarantees happy endings. It points out good things which are coming your way definitely and for sure!
SATURDAY May 18th 2013
On Saturday beware of fast-talking sales people when Gemini Venus and impulsive Aries Uranus join forces to shmooze you into doing something rash. Your cognitive cabilities may not be up to par because Mercury is at right angles to foggy-minded Neptune. On the other hand, this could be a great weekend ... if you are the one doing the fast-talk shmoozing.
SUNDAY May 19th 2013
On Sunday the weekend ends on a cool and sober note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a trine to no-nonsense Pluto and squares off against Gemini Venus. The Moon/Venus aspect suggests you should be on guard for the green-eyed monster of jealousy. Don't take every glance and whisper so seriously.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between May 20th and 26th when the Sun leaves stodgy Taurus and charges into Gemini ... for four weeks of restlessness and multitasking. Then on May 25th the Gemini Sun goes opposite the Sagittarius Full Moon for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. This could be your lucky lottery day since the Sagittarius Full Moon is the lunar phase we call the DENARIUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. More details next time ....
